Stockholm University invites applications for a postdoctoral fellow focusing on nitrous oxide (N2O) fluxes and nitrogen cycling on the East Siberian Arctic Shelf. This full-time, fixed-term, two-year position will be located in Stockholm, Sweden.

This project will measure N2O fluxes between ocean and atmosphere and identify potential N2O sources, as well as quantify rates of key nitrogen cycling processes across the East Siberian Arctic Shelf. The position involves a field campaign to the study area and laboratory incubations with state-of-the-art, compound-specific isotope tools.

Applicants are expected to hold a Swedish doctoral degree, or an equivalent degree from another country, in a field such as environmental sciences, Earth sciences, or biology. Collaborative skills and well-developed proficiency in scientific writing are required. Experience with greenhouse gas measurements, isotopic and chromatographic techniques, and field sampling are beneficial. A background in aquatic or terrestrial biogeochemistry or ecology would be advantageous. The doctoral degree should have been completed no more than three years before the deadline for applications.

Applications must be submitted online and include:

  • Applicant’s contact details and personal data;
  • Applicant’s highest degree earned;
  • Information about the applicant’s language skills;
  • Contact information for two to three references;
  • Cover letter;
  • Curriculum vitae including degrees and other completed courses, work experience, and a list of publications;
  • Research proposal of no more than three pages describing why you are interested in the field/project described in the advertisement, why and how you wish to complete the project, and what makes you suitable for the project in question;
  • Copy of PhD diploma;
  • Letters of recommendation (no more than three files); and
  • Publications in support of application (no more than three files).
